CLEVELAND -- Hosting the Indiana Pacers for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, the Cleveland Cavaliers kicked off their 2018 postseason on Sunday.
And it didn't take long for the Cavs to add to their highlight reel.
After LeBron James found a cutting Rodney Hood for Cleveland's first basket -- and dunk -- of the game, Cavs point guard George Hill brought the capacity crowd at Quicken Loans Arena back to its feet with a highlight dunk of his own.
Hill's dunk came on a 2-on-1 after James intercepted a pass intended for Pacers center Myles Turner. After James kicked the ball ahead to Hill, the Indiana defense converged on the Cavs star forward, allowing their 6-foot-3 point guard to throw down an uncontested jam.
Despite this being his first playoff game with the Cavs, Hill is no stranger to postseason play. Between previous stints in San Antonio, Indiana and Utah, the Indianapolis native now possesses 84 games of playoff experience, where he's shown a propensity for rising to the occasion on basketball's biggest stage.
"I love this time of year, playoffs," Hill said earlier this week. "I feel like that's when I play my best ball and things like that. Earlier in the year [before being traded to the Cavs] I didn't think it was possible, so I'm happy for the opportunity."
